* In ''Manga/PrincessPrincess'', Yuujirou's family comes to visit while the princesses have to perform. Because his toddler half-brother barely knows Yuujirou and is surprised to see him in girls' clothing, he's initially terrified by him, but accepts Yuujirou at the end by calling him 'Sister'. He then announces his intention to marry 'Sister', which everyone finds awkwardly funny and cute.

* The OAV adaptation of the bishoujo game ''Ko-ko-ro...'' plays host to a fairly {{Squick}}-filled and near-literal example of this trope; Asuka Kuonji, [[BrotherSisterIncest deeply in love with her brother, Souji, and who regularly initiates sex with him]], becomes upset when Souji begins a relationship with his teacher, Mizuki. Fearing losing Souji both physically and emotionally, Asuka nudges him into revisiting the traumatic event that numbed him to the world around him and precipitated the start of their incestuous relationship, so that she can take him back from Mizuki. The plot works, and after Souji has fallen catatonic, Asuka fantasizes about [[spoiler:raping his unresponsive body on top of a church altar, crowing and giggling that she and he are together forever]].
** This may be an allusion to a scene from the game in which Asuka fantasizes about [[spoiler:''actually marrying Souji in a church ceremony'', complete with her in wedding dress and him in a white tuxedo; the marriage is shown to be consummated before they take a single step from the altar as man and wife]].

* In Creator/MaryRenault's first UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat book, ''Literature/FireFromHeaven'', the four-year-old Alexander proposes to his mother. She treats it as just something very young kids say. What follows when dad Philip comes in, drunk and brutal, is [[FreudWasRight an Oedipal scene]] that is so painful for Alexander he represses the memory until he's much older.

Children have a bit of a strange understanding in regards to sexual relationships between adults. If you don't know about the intricacies of all that kind of stuff, it just seems like the husband-wife relationship is between two people[[note]]Well, due to heteronormative standards mostly a man and a woman - and that's the [[UpToEleven all defining and only relevant thing]] [[/note]] who love each other a lot. Never mind what ''kind'' of love it is. Obviously, since we're talking about little kids here, the effect is usually sweet and endearing rather than creepy.

* Combined with DualMeaningChorus in Steve Wariner's "[[http://www.cowboylyrics.com/lyrics/wariner-steve/im-already-taken-2921.html I'm Already Taken]]". In the first two verses, the narrator tries to ask out a little blonde-haired girl and gets the title response. By the third verse, she's now the mother of their boy, who asks innocently, "mommy, will you marry me?"

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', Cersei and Jaime are an example of this type of relationship that continued well into adulthood, sex and all, [[spoiler:plus Jaime secretly fathering Cersei's children]]. It's mentioned that their mother caught them behaving inappropriately with each other when they were children and moved Jaime's room to the other side of the castle to try and stop it, but obviously this didn't work. Cersei also says that despite knowing this relationship wasn't allowed they comforted each other with the fact that the ruling dynasty also practiced brother-sister marriage, though that backfired horribly when the incest produced "Mad King" Aerys Targaryen, who brought down said dynasty.

* ''Wild Strawberries'' a movie about an old man afraid of well, being old, has a scene where the elderly character visits an elderly friend who reads to him some of her children's keepsakes one of which is a scribbled note from a daughter saying 'when I grow up I want to marry daddy'. The lady makes a comment about how sweet and innocent it was.

* In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword]]'', this shows up with Priscilla and her long lost brother Raymond, [[ThatManIsDead now known as]] Raven. The ambiguous context of their support conversation makes it unclear whether she is just observing their ChildhoodMarriagePromise or actually expecting Raven to deliver on it. Considering [[BrotherSisterIncest/FireEmblem the franchise]], it's probably the latter.
